At last! Some good news! Work has begun to remove the toll booths on the Severn Bridge, which is a major motorway link between England and Wales. Some of the frustration of years of tolls is expressed in the poem Ode on the Severn Bridge by Harri Webb:
Two lands at last connected
Across the waters wide,
And all the tolls collected
On the English side.
In Ancient Greek mythology, the river Styx separated life and the afterlife and a toll was paid to the ferryman to cross. Is there a toll required to enter into the afterlife? Is heaven only available to those who are carrying exact change?
The good news of Jesus Christ, is that he came to abolish the cost of sin, to remove the tolls for us, so that all who turn to him can have everlasting life.
Avoid the tolls and turn to Jesus Christ.
